It’s finally October, or should I say #Oatober! Which means everything pumpkin and oats! As a member of Peanut Butter & Co’s Yum Squad I have been working on a project for Oatober using Peanut Butter & Co peanut butter and Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Oats. I was having a hard time deciding what to make and once I narrowed it down and made a few the answer was clear! Two of my families fall favorites pumpkin pie and apple crisp and put them into one, well parts of them anyways. All the crunchy goodness of apple crisp with a thick smooth creamy pumpkin pie filling! I’m not a fan of pie, I like pies but not a fan of the crust so I usually just eat the middle of pumpkin pie. I do love apple crisp, every part of it, especially the crumble topping and texture so why not put them together and make Pumpkin Pie Crisp! A traditional crisp topping usually consists of butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, and spices such as cinnamon. Instead of butter I used peanut butter and coconut oil, oat flour and oats, coconut palm sugar, and I omitted the cinnamon only because I wanted the peanut butter flavor and didn’t want to overpower it, but feel free to add it. I wanted to go with a peanut butter that was easily available and I know White Chocolate Wonder is easy to find and at a handful of stores including Target. Of course I had to make another batch to photograph and tried out the new Peanut Butter & Co Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter, which is also very delicious! I had to order the Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter as it isn’t available in any stores here in MN which again was a reason I went with the White Chocolate Wonder as it is easy to find.
Perfect for dessert, snack, or even breakfast! Yes again I said breakfast and I know people are shaking their heads but oats, peanut butter, pumpkin, perfect breakfast food and it will have you full and fueled for hours! Great for any fall get together or even Halloween or Thanksgiving as it is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Gluten free, dairy free, and vegan it can be enjoyed by many that may have dietary restrictions which is something I always think about when attending parties or get togethers. Really you don’t need a reason to make it though, you just need to make it!
Being part of Yum Squad the peanut butter and oats used were given to me to create this recipe for #Oatober AND I get to giveaway 2 jars of Peanut Butter & Co Peanut Butter, one jar of Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter and one jar White Chocolate Wonder Peanut Butter, and a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Old Fashioned Rolled Oats to help you create this recipe yourself! Enter below now through midnight October 31st, 2015.
8×8 pan, 9-12 servings
Topping and crust:
1c oat flour, you can just grind rolled oats to a flour consistency
1 1/2c Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats or Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats, gluten free if needed
1/3c coconut palm sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2c Peanut Butter & Co White Chocolate Wonder (also tastes amazing with the Peanut Butter & Co Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter)
1/4c coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/3c pure maple syrup
1 (15oz) can pumpkin, not pie filling
1/3c non dairy milk (used So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk)
2 TBSP chia seeds (plus 1/2c water)*
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
whipped cream or ice cream, optional (used So Delicious Coco Whip, coconut whipped cream)
*If you do not have a Vitamix or high speed blender you may want to use chia powder instead of chia seeds to maintain the creamy texture.
Soak the chia seeds in 1/2c of water, this can be done while you are making and baking the crust. Preheat oven to 350F. In a bowl combine oat flour, oats, coconut palm sugar, salt, and baking soda. In a separate bowl mix together coconut oil, peanut butter, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together until well combine. The mixture will be crumbly. Press 1/2-2/3 mixture into the bottom of a pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes. Blend filling ingredient, including the soaked chia seeds, in a Vitamix or high speed blender until smooth. Carefully pour over the filling over the warm crust, spreading from the inside out carefully. Sprinkle the remaining crumble topping over the filling. Bake for 40 minutes, top should be golden brown. Let cool before cutting or if wanting to enjoy warm scoop out. Top with whipped cream, or ice cream if desired. Enjoy!This Pumpkin Crisp looks like a delightful way to celebrate #Oatober! @PeanutButterCo @BobsRedMill Click To Tweet

I need a pan of this lol. My favorite fall food is actually apple crisp, but I love pumpkin everything too! FAll in Az is a joke though. So. hot!
Sounds like this is just for you! You can come up to MN, it’s been chilly here and I don’t think we hit 60 the last few days.
Sam @ PancakeWarriors
You literally created my new must have Thanksgiving dinner dessert. I don’t love the crust either, and am all about the crumble. Can’t wait to try this!

The “season” has about 8 weeks left, at the rate my family is going through it I say you need 6 jars. If it is just you maybe you can get away with 4. 😉
I do love pumpkin…just not pumpkin pie! I love pumpkin bars, pumpkin drinks and soup with pumpkin, just not pie!
I hear that! I only like one and that is a double decker, no bake, “cheesecake” one I use to make with a graham cracker crust. It was more of a pudding than pie though.
Susie @ SuzLyfe
Wow. You know that I love my pumpkin, my pb, my oats… this is perfection!
Susie @ SuzLyfe recently posted…Happy Fall Face: Five Things I’m Looking Forward to This October
Yes! Thank you, I hope you love this crisp too!
Yummy this is a must do!
Wow I have to try this one; looks delicious!
I love all food pumpkin or apple!!!
Sounds like you have good taste!
Yum! I love anything pumpkin!
I hope you love this too!
I am ALL about pumpkin everything in the fall. This crisp looks amazing!!
I love pumpkin, but the best food in fall has to be Cortland apples, here in Ontario!
I love a good fresh apple! Not sure I could pick just one favorite apple.
Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother Runner
ooh I like the looks of that. So I don’t know the difference btwn rolled oats and quick oats?? People do seem to like the Bob’s red mill
Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother Runner recently posted…Oatmeal 101-Recipe Round Up
Thank you! Rolled oats are thicker and I use them for baked goods. I don’t buy quick oats usually as I buy rolled oats for recipes and for making regular oatmeal we usually eat steel cut.
I never really liked pumpkin all that much until a couple years ago…but I’ve definitely converted! Fall recipes with pumpkin or apple (or any type of squash) make me super happy! 😀 My friend saw this on her feed earlier today and said this looks amazing! <3 (I very much agree.)
Farrah recently posted…Foodie Friday: Apple Butter Pulled Chicken Crisps
Thank you! Sometimes our taste buds change, I know mine have. Oh yes squash is a must and I eat as much as I can while it’s in season!
I’d love to try the pumpkin PB and co! I’ve looked for it in stores here and no one is carrying it. I do love pumpkin. I also love all the spices used, anything snicker doodle or gingerbread cookie like. And crumble beats pie every time!
The stores here don’t carry it either so I had to order it online. I believe it is only being sold at Sprouts, Fresh Market, Shop ‘N Kart, and Chuck’s Produce. Oh gingerbread and snickerdoodle, love those and that “season” is coming up quick, if there was a season for it.
I love pumpkin and one of my favorite recipes for fall is pumpkin cheesecake.
Great choice! I made some cute Pumpkin Spice Latte “Cheesecakes” that I need to make again soon!
I love pumpkin! I have so many favorite fall foods but at the top of the list are honey crisp apples, pumpkin oats, and roasted butternut squash.
All great choices!!
I LOVE pumpkin stuff! This recipe looks soooo good!
I love pumpkin! Especially pumpkin and dark chocolate. I can’t have pumpkin bread in the house at all- or it will be gone overnight. ha!
Yes a delicious combo! I didn’t fall in love with it until last year, and then made a pretty epic Raw Chocolate Pumpkin “Cheesecake” that I couldn’t get enough of and has already been requested again this Thanksgiving! Pumpkin bread doesn’t last long in our house, or any breads or pumpkin recipes for that matter.

Linz @ Itz Linz recently posted…running happy
Oh do you have a favorite? I was just going to make some pumpkin ice cream as I haven’t found any in a few years that I like. There was one year it was really warm and we made lots of pumpkin milkshakes!
I am a pumpkin fan if it’s the real thing. My favorite fall food is pumpkin pie. I like a slice cold with hot coffee for breakfast.
I love that you love pumpkin pie for breakfast, dessert for breakfast makes me smile and always makes the day better! This Pumpkin Crisp is definitely a great option for breakfast!
I am a pumpkin lover. I even use it in one of my chili recipes. Can’t wait to try this recipe. I just bought the pumpkin spice peanut butter so I will use it.
I love chili with pumpkin! Also delicious with sweet potato or butternut squash. I hope you enjoy it, keep me posted! What do you think of the peanut butter?
My favorite Fall food is pumpkin pie. I love all food that have pumpkin in it.
A delicious classic, good choice!

BIG time pumpkin lover!!! I would have to say Pumpkin Spice Lattes are my favorite!
So warm and comforting, Pumpkin Spice Lattes are one of my favorites too!
I love pumpkins for decorating and eating. My favorite fall food is anything I can make in the crockpot.
Oh yes! I have a couple fall pumpkin crock-pot favorites, a pumpkin applesauce and vegan pumpkin chili! Do you have any favorite fall crock-pot meals? I think we will be breaking out our more this fall with our schedules getting busier in the fall season.
Pumpkin crumble! This is genious! I love pumpkin and all fall spiced things. I was curious if you did Apple pumpkin crumble how it would be… I’ll do some experiments and let you know!
Thank you! I thought about that and thought it would make a sweeter version with the apple added, we love my pumpkin applesauce so I can imagine it would be good. Let me know how it turns out for you I will have to play too the next time I whip it up!
I hated pumpkin as a child and now can’t get enough of it. I like it in my morning oatmeal with pecans and cranberries. Pumpkin cake and pie are also favorites!
It’s it crazy how our tastes change over the year! Oh yes pumpkin oatmeal with pecans and cranberries, I could go for a bowl right now to warm up!
I love pumpkin! We love pumpkin rolls in our house.
Like pumpkin cinnamon rolls? I have to leave almost all the breads to my husband as he is the breadman! He made some delicious pumpkin cinnamon rolls last year and I was wondering how pumpkin rolls would turn out, like dinner rolls that weren’t sweet.
Love this idea for fall! Pumpkin spice peanut butter Could be dangerous!
I love pumpkin and apple desserts when the weather gets cooler. Which sadly, has not happened yet here in Southern California.

I ♡ this peanut butter!
Love this peanut butter!
This looks delicious! I am newly diagnosed with multiple food allergies, including nuts. Do you have a recommendation of what to use in place of the peanut butter? Thanks!
Thank you! It is like a traditional crumble topping so you could use butter and adjust but I would probably go with coconut butter, starting with 1/3 cup, and adding just enough to come to a crumble texture or adding in 1/2 cup and omitting the coconut oil. I haven’t tried it and I right now I don’t have a kitchen as we are under some big remodeling projects but I can test it out next time I make it. If you end up making it let me know how it turns out. Again you could make the filling as is and just make your favorite crumble topping, doubling, and pressing in the bottom it just may not hold up as well.
Thank you! I have all the ingredients to make it for Thanksgiving. I will play around with the topping and let you know how it is. Happy Thanksgiving!!
